Vitreo-Retinal Surgery


Facilities Available At Dr. Jiyalal Memorial Hospital

Vitreoretinal surgery is required to treat conditions that affect the back of the eye, these include diagnoses such as:

Retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, macular hole, macular degeneration, epiretinal membranes (macular pucker), severe eye trauma, opacities of the vitreous and complications of cataract surgery, including dislocated cataract fragments and severe infection.

Recent advances in retinal surgery have brought great benefits in the treatment of conditions that previously would have resulted in blindness.

Approximately 90% of retinal detachment cases can now be corrected with a single operation, and exciting new vitreoretinal techniques offer hope for increasingly common conditions such as macular degeneration.

 Surgical Procedure

 Vitreo-retinal surgery includes the following


Anterior vitrectomy is the removal of the front portion of vitreous tissue. It is used for preventing or treating vitreous loss during cataract or corneal surgery, or to remove misplaced vitreous in conditions such as aphakia pupillary block glaucoma.
Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), or trans pars plana vitrectomy (TPPV), is a procedure to remove vitreous opacities and membranes through a pars plana incision. It is frequently combined with other intraocular procedures for the treatment of giant retinal tears, tractional retinal detachments, and posterior vitreous detachments.
Pan retinal photocoagulation (PRP) is a type of photocoagulation therapy used in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy.

Retinal detachment repair

Ignipuncture  is an obsolete procedure that involves cauterization of the retina with a very hot pointed instrument.
A scleral buckle is used in the repair of a retinal detachment to indent or "buckle" the sclera inward, usually by sewing a piece of preserved sclera or silicone rubber to its surface.
Laser photocoagulation, or photocoagulation therapy, is the use of a laser to seal a retinal tear.    readmore..
